Signature scents

After trying many, many B&I scents, two front runners stand out, and tell me what direction I should go in for future scents.

It seems my signature scents, the ones that make me feel best and smell the best to everyone else are in the "Floriental" category, a category I've always rather avoided for fear that they would be too mature or too overpowering to me. The winners are:

1. Delices de Cartier - This one will get me at least one "What are you wearing? You smell GOOD!" every time I wear it. At first I thought it was too mature or too swanky to wear every day, but it's become my go-to scent for feeling oh-so-pretty and confident.

2. Flowerbomb - Flowerbomb runs a very close second. It too gets me compliments and my dear husband likes this one just a smidge more than Delices de Cartier. It's a touch sweeter and fruiter than Delices de Cartier, but with enough base notes to hold it all together.

It's funny, because my first two purchases from B&I were Purple Pumpkin and Snow Queen. I didn't like Snow Queen at first, but the notes are very similar to Delices de Cartier, and I grew to love it. I can't wait to get a big spray of it when the winter scents are available again.

What about ya'll? What are your signature scents?

The two I'm in love with are: Hope Chest and Spellbound Woods.

Shawn has his favorites on me: Aqua Fresca (thanks for sending it AG)! and Padparasha.

This summer I've found that Aqua Fresca and the Strawberry Lemonade are nice light warm weather scents.

I'm sharing the Delices de Cartier love. I'm also a big fan of any of the Jo Malone scents; Nectarine Blossom and Honey is a beautiful summery scent, French Lime Blossom is very springy and Black Vetyver Cafe is nice even if it fades quickly.
